Looking for a PDF reader with search history (say 100 last items) for Windows.

Both commercial and freeware recommendations are welcome.

  • Installed. Don't see where is it. There is no drop-down list with the prev. searching text. Tried both simple search and advanced search. Idea: add this feature yourself to any open source PDF reader.

PDF-XChange Editor by Tracker Software (horrible name, I know... but great software!) is a quality Windows PDF reader that has search history.

I have personally used this software, and I consider it to be excellent. The only big thing it's currently missing is a good dark mode.
